SAT Subject Test Score

Hi all,

I am a rising junior and took the Subject Test in US History earlier this year. I received a 680, a very poor performance and I was wondering how much this would really affect college admissions? If it helps, I took AP US History too and I got a 4, which isn't very great either but slightly better. I plan on taking 4 more subject tests (Math 2, Bio, Lit, Spanish), and now that I am more aware of how the test really works and how much studying is required to perform well I am aiming for a 750+ on all of them.

My dream school is Cornell University as an English Major, which I know is very selective so this makes me worried! Besides this one score, the rest of my application is strong as I have a 4.6 GPA (4.0 Unweighted) and very solid extracurricular activities. I am taking the main SAT for the first time on August 26th! (Wish me luck! Fingers crossed for a 1550+!)

Thank you for all of the help! I really appreciate it.
